an enemy, and the friendly bill clinton coming to israel and winning the hearts of israelis instantly, although their positions were very critical of israeli policy, definitely is a d saddat. the trick for president obama now, and i think this is exactly what he's trying to do. he says trying to clinton-ize himself, reach out and give the israelis the hug they did not get for four years. if this works, that lays the foundation for a renewed peace process, then he can come with the difficult stuff and say to israelis, i love you so much, i care for you, i stand by you, therefore you must act now and take some risks in order to improve your position, dealing with occupation and see the middle east as it is. >>> and the middle east as it is, you understand this region so well, post-arab spring, with the real danger on israel's doorstep, not only syria in civil war, but egypt in a potential meltdown of security t. how does he deal with that? >> i think think a fair, interesting and challenging moment. he challenges everybody. israelis must realize they have to deal with occupation and sto
no choice. hillary clinton's e-mails have been hacked and the hacker sending them straight to congress. the latest on this development. >>steve: mayor michael bloomberg's latest health push. take away the cigarettes and put them so nobody can see them. we'll give you details. >>brian: it will take a ski buddy to tame the tiger. tiger woods going public about his relationship with lindsey vonn. wait until you see what else the couple is revealing. >>steve: hillary's e-mail? >>brian: "fox & friends" starts now. >>steve: great job, shepherd smith. beautiful. i hope you've been watching over the last couple of hours, the fox news coverage of the installation of the pope has been fantastic. >> i feel like i've been to mass this morning. an historic day for the billions of catholics and the world. the new pontiff installation mass just ended moments ago in a packed st. peter's square. >>steve: fox news contributor jonathan morris joins us live from rome. >>brian: does this remind you of pope benedict? >> yes and no. yes because it is the same faith, yes because it is the same teaching. pope
of state hillary clinton that she had, in testimony she says she hasn't spoken with any of these survivors because of the fbi's ongoing investigation. the fbi is going to be speaking about the status of that investigation. what do you think needs to come forward? what questions need to be asked here? >> well, i think there's so many angles here and, by the way, so many people in the intel community both former and current members and also the military are so happy that we are continuing to talk about this. very few people are, but this is such an important issue. that appearance by, that ridiculous appearance by hillary clinton up on the hill sometime ago -- remember, this is six months on from the attack in benghazi, you know, half of the room was slobbering deference over how wonderful she is, and the other half couldn't take a couple of quick questions and keep hammering on those. the white house has an obligation to explain themselves, to talk about why the cavalry was never called. the expectation is that when, you know, it hits the fan and everything starts to go south, you've got so
, way wrong. hillary clinton today came out in favor of supporting gay marriage. young people in the rnc's own report, young people are the ones leading the way on that. i'll give reince priebus credit for saying in that report that the issue of gay rights is a gateway issue for young people that if the republicans don't get right on, no young people are going to listen to him on anything else. it is a gateway, a gateway. they said that. they alluded barely to the question of immigration and immigration reform. you had the president today nominating tony perez, hispanic american, to be secretary of labor. putting the point that it is not so much diversity as rush limbaugh says, it is diversity. the republicans don't get it. you read that report, it sounds like they want to send an and throw poe logical study group into america to look at hispanics, blacks, young people, gays and so forth. they just don't get it. and the way you get to them is with issues. health care, immigration reform, gay rights, women's rights. if they want minorities, if they want to expand the party as they claim t
family, it was the clinton model that inspired my politics. the republicans after this loss, i couldn't, james said it best and said it in a way that he like hearing folks in the south say it. he said it well -- the republicans have taken their loss and just doubled down. if not tripled down. i like paul ryan, he's a bright guy. but for the life of me how you think you can take the affordable care act, gut it, take the things that you think are good, take all the benefits for people, those without health insurance and align it with what joy said and provide essentially the goods of those who have a lot is beyond me. now having said that i don't know how much more we can raise taxes on the wealthiest in the country. if you look at the big, big states in the country, people are paying 39% in the high rate and -- >> bill maher is tie ired of paying a high tax rate. >> he's not alone. the question is how do you find the balance. i don't think there's anything wrong with asking the question. i don't fully agree with the fact that there's not an equivalency between the two. i think there's
secretary of state hillary clinton getting on the right side of history in her view and the view of her party coming up with a video changing the clinton view on doma and in the republican party, we're hearing from all across the spectrum that regardless of what the supreme court does the party needs to have a more libertarian view on this. republicans are telling us it would be a huge help with fund-raising especially in the big states of new york, california, and florida. if the republican party were to be more open on this. and people are telling us that investors don't want to invest what they think losing national elections which could continue to be the case if republicans stay very narrow on this issue. republicans i talked to even extremely conservative ones, very christian conservative republicans are telling me the polls they have seen in the last couple of weeks have been eye-opening, showing not only that young people very heavily in favor of gay marriage, but if you extrapolate that a little bit in just 10, 20 years, this is going to be 70/30 issue that republicans are goin
-one piece. we have experience of this. contribute able to to many contributions from world. speaking clinton was that since the united nations was founded, tyrant -- ireland is the one country that can validly point to the fact that we have personnel and peacekeepers in some locations around the world on peacekeeping and humanitarian missions since the u.n. was founded. of the well aware troubles in ireland over a 30- year time and how painful that was and how it affected life on our island brutally, tragically, and involved an enormous scale of response from some many people. many people. the hatred and loss was written over our timely -- tiny island. democracy and the region and the pursuit of democratic ideals, they were part of peace. the united states and america played its part in that area -- in that. america, in its pursuit of democracy, united us in so many ways. thatall being in this city in 1996 when the clinton administration called meetings from a business and political point of view. i remember senator george mitchell speaking about democracy. i remember him recalling his own f
borrow that from hillary clinton's pantsuit? >> we weren't inclusive. >> rience priebus came out with the autopsy what happened in the campaign of 2012 which i'm sure you remember. >> we had some biologically stupid things that were said. >> i do remember the election. >> is america still the land of opportunity? >> you called trust and verify which is your immigration plan. >> what we're trying to do is add teeth to that bipartisan plan. >> more than half our members have never dealt with the issue of immigration reform. >> poco spanglish. >> if you're not showing up in the community, the perception becomes reality. >> that's about all i can do. >> maria teresa kumar. and joy reid, managing editor of the grio.com. joy, rand paul has made pretty big waves today on immigration, as you heard. stop laughing. he said in a speech today, "i think the conversation needs to start by acknowledging we are not going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants." okay, so we all think pathway to citizenship. then he begins to kind of hedge his bets a bit and starts withdrawing. so what exactly is
more effectively in the way that bill clinton was able to do in the '90s. >> now, chuck, i would be remiss if -- there was a light-hearted moment in that netanyahu/president obama press conference yesterday that did involve you. let's play it and we'll come back and talk about it. >> reporter: so i've heard. >> thank you, mr. president, mr. prime minister. mr. president, i want to follow up a little bit on the peace process. mr. prime minister, i want to help out my colleague over here and then a question -- another question i had for you is -- >> chuck, how many you got? you see how the young lady from channel 1, she had one question. she was very well behaved, chuck? >> i've got one for you. >> these are -- >> passover starts in a couple days. i get four questions, right? >> this is not a kosher question, but don't hog it. >> chuck, i mean you're just incorrigible. >> the incorrigible chuck todd. >> reporter: there are worse things to be called by the president. but let the record state it was three questions. one for the president and maybe i slipped in two for the prime minis
of state hillary clinton's support for same sex marriage reaffirmed that the issue is a litmus test for any democrat considering a potential presidential run in 2016. clinton's florida poll numbers prove she can big foot almost any competition. the guy who wants to be that competition, vice president joe biden, showed how much he's chosen to own an issue that will play well with the democratic base. but may prove tougher to defend in a general election. limits on guns. >> you know, it must be awful to lead a public office and concluding that even though you might believe you should take action that you can't take action because of a political consequence you face. what a heck of a way to make a living. >> nbc's senior political editor mark murray is here with more on this morning's first report. i know it's 2013. everyone says it's too early. golly. everything we just played there seems like it's not too early. one thing i was fascinated by and i thought that clip did it really well. it seems as though paul -- rand paul and marco rubio are sort of watching one another on immigration but on
and that's going to create growth. that's going to create an explosion of jobs. just like bill clinton did. no, no, no, no, no. it's exactly the opposite. it's the other way around. bill clinton created jobs, created growth in the economy, and that's what had the effect of balancing the budget, because we got so much more in tax revenues from those people that were working and paying taxes and from those businesses that are going great gangbusters and paying more taxes into the coffers. and we had more growth. so that's, you know, the republicans have these things exactly backwards. and rand paul has them even more backwards than paul ryan does. but, you know, there's no, you know, it's like talking to a brick wall. there's nothing that can be done and there's no negotiation that can be made with such people. >> i wonder, heather, how much of a liability this is going to be in 2014. you now have mitch mcconnell and john cornyn and ted cruz on record supporting turning the social -- basically tearing the social safety net asunder. and the question is, are they going to be held accountable f
to cpac what is fascinating is it has always been considered the fringe far right. during the clinton years, that's where the crazies went that's where you could buy bumper stickers and hilary and bill killing people. but it wasn't really seen as the republican party. it was like the crazies, the fevered swamp, and it's kind of interesting, but you forward to today it's synonymous. it's just as crazy, but they represent the republican party and the conservative movement so the problem is during the 10, 15 years ago any republican party did not go to cpac but now they are one in the same and they find themselves at places like cpac where you have zaher as sort of the prop comic, big gulp. >> hal: the carrot top of politics. >> right. so that's the delima that they find themselves in. >> hal: and not inviting chris christie who arguably is their way out as far as who is polling best on the republican side. simply because he reached across the aisle to deal with a real problem. you deal with the media, you know, veneer of the republican party at media matters.org. and
back to the clinton administration. just look at the scorecard and this is where the american people have to step up and understand what has happened and what we have to take on in terms of our accountability here. 134,000 iraqi civilians. not soldiers. 4500 of our own soldiers. 18 of soldiers who are veterans come back home are committing suicide on a daily basis. when you add the $2 trillion, we're talking about an extraordinary cost in human lives and resources and at the end of the day, we didn't have to do this and it wasn't effective. when you look at iraq now as a nation, it has not progressed in the way the liberators said it would progress. i hope the people open their eyes on this occasion to reflect very, very thoughtfully about what has occurred here and it's only doing the people of the united states who can make sure this never happens again. >> the justification on the other side has been look, saddam hussein was a monster. he was evil. getting rid of him was not a bad thing and if that was the ultimate consequence of the iraq war, then so much the better. what do you
is worried at all. they have something in hillary clinton and in the buildup of the clinton machine and then the obama machine. when those two things come together in 2016, the republicans have a really tough job. there is a reason that there has been nobody from the complete outside come in and run for president for either party. you to have a network and an organization. one of the best things i think that dr. ben carson can do, if he is seriously considering this, is to enjoy a little bit of spotlight now. not every tv show right now. find some people that can advise you and go out to the cabin in the woods for three months and think. get four stages deep in the question. the problem with the republicans is they fall in and out of love with people in if hours. nobody can have any staying power. now we don't like rand paul because he his policy on immigration is bad. they get all thrown up in the air. >> eric: greg? >> greg: yeah. okay. i want to go through the -- these are all the recent targets, by what i call the new white racist, gawker and daily coast and whatever. ben carson
pin them. just pin them. you're done. [ whistle ] hillary clinton, i'm glad you got your e-mails hacked. you're done sending and receiving e-mails in comic sands. these are top secret bits of correspondent. not third grade art project. once you're secretary of state i think you graduated to a sarah. hillary clinton, you're done. and finally cvs. you're done telling health insurance applicants you're going to make them tell you their weight. it's an invasion of privacy. plus they are american so you already know the answer, kind of chubby. how to fix this problem and create thousands of new jobs. start hiring carnival weight guessers. i'm done talking now. drop and give me 50-thousand. >> michael: of course i'm joined with brett erlich right now. brett, really interesting stuff how long have you been a coach? i mean, fake coach? >> it's funny you asked that. i spent years as a fake assistant. when i was really little i used to hand water to the players. >> michael: there is nothing in there. >> fake water. >> michael: obviously you were a fake coach. >> mm-hmm, good at it. >
shows former florida governor jeb bush losing in a 2016 matchup with hillary clinton in his home state. hillary beating jeb in florida. that's amazing. and there's more. marco rubio, the republican's break-out star of the year, loses to hillary, too. he's trailing by 11 points. both would get pounced on their home turf. this is the political fallout. it rubs off on their candidates. joining me now is ed rendell, former pennsylvania governor, and susan milligan, thank you both for your time. >> absolutely. >> my pleasure. >> ed, hillary clinton beats both jeb bush and marco rubio in their home state? is it panic time for the republicans? >> sure. because she just didn't beat him in a poll last month. she beat him by two or three points. now she's beating him by 11 points. and these are the two florida superstars. and worse, marco rubio has fallen down to 21. that's happened in a short period of time. they both waffled on path to citizenship and, again, it's part of the gun stuff and part of the whole negativity of the republican party and this party's go the to understand, it's not the
clinton endorsed gay marriage. >> lbgt americans are our colleagues, our teachers our soldiers, our friends our loved ones, and they are full and equal citizens and deserve the rights of citizenship. that includes marriage. >> michael: great stuff. totally great stuff. progress always great to watch, but to be fair it's not exactly risky that position puts her squarely among the majority. support for gay marriage has reached an all-time high according to a new poll that is out today. it is nearly double what it was in 2004. but at cpac the republican bases show how out of step it is on that issue. they attacked rod portman for backing gay marriage after his own son came out. >> just because something like that hits home, i don't know why you change your beliefs. i mean that's what bothers me. his belief is very easily changed just because his son is gay. i don't get that. >> reporter: he came out in favor of same-sex marriage. what is your reaction to that? >> horrible. that's his fault. and he gets no sympathy from me. >> quit being so selfish as to think only abou
to the clinton era, if hillary chooses to run? when does that shift take place? >> as a president goes through a second term, interest in the president starts to go to the congressional wing of the party. what obama is trying to achieve for his legacy does not necessarily line up with what congressional democrats are interested in, in making a clear distinction between who they are and republicans. i want to reinforce democrats are not in as bad as a shape as republicans. the democrats really are not attached to obama like republicans were to reagan. when obama ran, he ran against the establishment of a party. he did not have a "democrat" on his bumper sticker. his identity was to be separate from washington. he did not campaign for democrats. his appeal is less transferable for democrats going forward than they did for a type of person who had been elected like bill clinton. >> that is what becomes a case in the democratic party? -- who becomes the face of the democratic party? >> you guys did a great job. jimmy carter was president four years, but you made him the president of the democratic
of experience as a commentator for cnn after .lecting bill clinton in 1992, riding out of the right corner, the fox news contributor and standing tall,-- tucker carlson. >> we will have some fun here today. >> this is going to be a three- round bout. there are no rules, and a fighter can be saved by the bell. let's shake hands. we are ready to go. i will be tossing out a series of topics, and each fighter will have one minute to respond. we are going to go based on an order that was decided backstage, completely fairly, documented after we made sure all voters had id. we are going to begin with paul, and in each case, each of them will be asked the same question. [bell rings] there is the bell. we are ready to go. it is round one, question one -- america -- isn't that magnificent? i can see why you would get distracted. america is the world's policeman. >> get over it. >> thank you, tucker. it is a beautiful facility. to the extent we are willing to let crazy people romp through our neighborhood, yes, we are the world's policeman. we are not the world's social worker. to the extent that we
-mail sent to the former secretary of state hillary clinton. other reported targets include colin powell's facebook page and e-mails of the bush family. a shadowy figure is said to be behind the hacking. we're trying to figure out just what is going on, just who the guccifer as it is pronounced is. brian todd is walking into the situation room right now. you've been looking into the story. what are you finding out? >> this is a very mysterious figure and he has the u.s.'s best investigators after him. we have confirmed as wolf mentioned this afternoon the secret service is investigating the hacks of e-mails sent to hillary clinton by a former aide. experts worry the perpetrator may start to target e-mails mrs. clinton, herself, and others will send. a hacker who is reported to have broken into correspondence involving former presidents apparently has found a new target. confidential memos to hillary clinton from a former aide have been hacked according to the website smoking gun. the secret service says it is investigating. smoking gun says it has been in touch with the hacker known as g
and other security issues has counterbalanced hillary clinton's very strong voice when she was secretary of state. so very interesting. uma: what do you think the men come away with from knowing that they are being watched very carefully by the women in this? it can no longer be simply an old boy network. >> yeah. i think the dynamic there has changed too where the men who have serve inside that body for a long time are now used to it. you know, they tell stories, women senators tell the stories when they fist have gotten there, you know, somebody on the senate floor will say, oh, no, this desk is for a senate. kelly ayotte tells the story she turns around, yes, i am a u.s. senator. [laughter] but the men are changing now, i think for the most part tend to look at their female colleagues as just colleagues in the senate. uma: and we're seeing more women in governorships, and that's making a big difference in states across the country. >> yeah. especially strong conservative female governors like nikki haley and susana martinez in new mexico, they're making big strides within the conserva
. and big news from former ap politics, hillary clinton announces support for gay marriage and joins possible candidates in that position. here is part of the announcement. >> i supported personally and as a matter of policy and law embedded in a broader effort to advance equality and opportunity for lgbt americans and all americans. >> greta: that message putting secretary clinton in line with other potential democratic candidates for 2016. and check out this headline from the huffington post weird news. the weirdest cocktail party ever included fried cockroaches and scorpions and one of the courses tarantulas. no that's not chicken, it's ostrich. and waiters passed around fried cockroaches. and why the weird menu? the explorers club says it's adventure. and a news anchor making her breaking news. >> and lurnd that a huntsville news anchor is being proposed to on live tv right now. >> after overcoming her shock the anchor tweeting did i just really get proposed to live on air? yes, i think i did. and holy cow, that's a proposal. congrats to the happy couple and now it's your turn to
, that reagan laid for the incredible ground work of the economy in the 1980's and 1990's. clinton helped to some extent, ut then he created and repealed glass-steagall, and everybody blames it on george bush. the conservatives who didn't do much for the letter peace, we tried to expand under karl rove, the voting process, and giving more to hispanic community, and we didn't get one increase in vote in that eight-year period so. what makes you think that we're going to give amnesty and all the set get a bunch of votes? it's fraud, and it's another really ploy by the democratic party to keep promising and benefits to everybody who will vote for them no matter what. scommoip we're going to talk about immigration in our next segment of the "washington journal" today. but we still have about five minutes left in this segment, if you want to call in to give us your take on this growth and opportunities report that was released today, or if you think hanges in the republican debates would have helped republicans in the 2012 election. a couple of other stories to point out, the front page of the
was chief of staff for president clinton; very successful businessman. alan simpson, his cochair there, was a former republican senator from wyoming. and that's not what they told us. in the committee two years ago, in the budget committee, maybe a little over two years now they gave a joint statement in which they said this nation has never faced a more predictable financial crisis. and what they were saying was the level of debt we are operating on, the unsustainability of the debt path was so great that we will have some sort of fiscal crisis. i remember about that same time the chairman of the fed, mr. bernanke, testified that you have all these out years and you talk about the debt numbers and all that, but you really don't have to worry about them. i'm paraphrasing but this was pretty close to what he said. because i think these were his exact words: it will never happen. what he basically told us was there would be a fiscal crisis before we get this far down the road. the demographics: aging population, fewer workers, greater debt every year, mushrooming in the out years. so i'm
dianne feinstein, but also lindsey graham and others. like at hillary clinton, al franken, elizabeth warren the senate is different. you get to the senate and people hold their head down for like the first six years. they move they are a work horse not a show horse. ted cruz is not like that and i think it's only a matter of days before he steps on his you know what? >> michael: yeah, he went over to mary landrieu's desk here 4:00 am -- after he tied china and the un and abortion together and reprimanded him, and then she walked away and supposedly he was just sort of chuckling as she walked away. >> the senate for better or worse, i guess we still have to call at it gentle person's club if you will. unlike the house they really treat themselves with respect and that counts for a lot. that's why cruz's attitude flagrantly just violating all of the rules of decor um and respect for other members has turned people off on both sides of the aisle -- the worst of the tea party. the worst of the tea party. >> michael: it's incredible and maybe the state he comes from as h
put forth by the breaux-thomas medicare commission presiden, pt bill clinton and alice rivlin. we'll be happy to take the amendment by unanimous consent. the presiding officer: the senator's time has expired. mrs. murray: madam president, i ask for the yeas and nays. the presiding officer: is there a sufficient second? there appears to be. mr. hatch: madam president? madam president? the presiding officer: the question is on amendment 432. the clerk will call the roll. vote: the presiding officer: are there any senators in the chamber wishing to vote or change their vote? if not, on this vote, the ayes are 96, the nays are 3. the amendment is agreed to. the senator from washington. without objection. under the previous order, there will be two minutes of debate equally divided in the usual form prior to a vote in relation to amendment 156 offered by mr. grassley. the senate will be in order. senators will take their confirmations out of the well. who yields time? mr. grassley: madam president? the presiding officer: the senator from iowa. mr. grassley: this amendment strikes a $97
unelected judges. >> for the first time in her long political career, hillary clinton came out in support of same-sex marriage in a video that your organization released this week. the former secretary of state, u.s. senator, 2008 presidential candidate, backed benefits for same-sex couples but never made an endorsement for marriage. she says it's about equality. listen. >> gay rights are human rights. and human rights are gay rights. and the united states would be a leader in defending those rights. >> do you think this is move to influence the supreme court like the american academy of pediatrics and others trying to get the opinion out there now before the court decides? >> i think what you see from hillary clinton and from the american academy of pediatrics and more and more figures public and private, more and more organizations, this is the issue in front of the court and in front of the american people in a way that it never has been before and lots of folks want to make sure their position on the issue is clear and you have seen more and more folks coming out for equality because
. >> that flies in the face of what bedid in the 1990s. bill clinton the president and john kasich and newt beginning we created the balanced budget act of 1997 and it was during the bush years of spending multiplied now by the obama years that we have the mess. my difficulty with the tea party freshmen isn't the true passion. they are an important part of the republican party. at the end of the day you have to govern. just saying no doesn't get you anything and create these falls crises. you can get past the false crises if you work something out. it doesn't mean sur renning principle. working together in a way that you get 60% of what you want. >> you have to go back. i don't think the tea party has created the budget crisis. we came in with members and tried to do something about it. i remember a day when april 15 is when the house and senate had to pass a budget resolution. i remember when they had to reconcile the 13 appropriations bills and a day when the president actually had to introduce his budget and today we don't do any of that stuff and that is how we got to the $16 trillion a
clinton did with aid to families with dependent children. so you have this reform of entitlements, reform of the various welfare programs and tax reform taking the top rate on individuals to 25%, the bottom rate to 10%. so you have two rates, 10 and 25. now we go from 10 up to 44 these days. and the corporate rate, which is 35% right now, the average in europe is 25. so when we compete internationally, we've hobbled ourselves because we tax our companies, our manufacturing companies more harshly than they do theirs. he wants to take that rate to 25 so it's close, so it's at the european average. now, i'd rather be better than europe. the canadians are about 17%. i prefer the canadian rate than the european average. so the republicans and democrats in their two budgets really show who they are. now, there's also a third budget which is the progressive budget which is the more liberal democrats, and they do massive new taxes on top of the ones i discussed plus massive new spending. so you have a sense of there's some democrats who want to go even further into big government than patty murra
to control bill clinton and his spending, and he is giving up his card. when boehner says we don't have an immediate dead crisis he is giving up his cards. he doesn't want to actually do something about this but likes being speaker. >> neil: they're looking at the next -- the end of this month we're facing yet another potential crisis. they're going to argue that the government could shut down. and this is their attempt to say, we won't brick -- bring it to that pranksmanship because we don't want it on our door step we caused it. but it's going to boomerang on them. they retook the upper hand and now they're giving it away. >> exactly right. sequestration was passed a year and a half ago, part of the plan a year and a half ago. all the republicans had to do is keep their mouth shut and stay out of the way. thank god they did that. here we go again. if they're not going to stand up now, to obama, and this absolute mindless spending, and borrowing and printing, then i have to say, neil, what the hell good are they? i'm going to tell you i'm not alone in this. the republicans putting out
president clinton signed in 1996 which bans federal marry i marital bs for same sex couples legally married in their states. you said that states have the right to de. to the is conservative isn't marriage a state issue and federal interferences wouldn't that be unconstitutional? >> i don't think so and neither did a democratic president. a lot of people are changing their minds because there has been a full court blitz by the popular culture by elites, by all kinds of folks to intimidate and cower people and no longer defend marriage as being between a man and a woman. >> chris. >> chris: go ahead, nicolle. >> chris, chris, the biggest problem that mr. bauer faces not just this morning but moving forward is that more than 65% of his own base self-describing evangelical christians under the age of 33 support marriage eequality. 80% of people in this country right, left, democrat, republican, man, woman, support marriage equality. more than 60% of all americans everyone supports marriage equality. and that very same activist court that he railed against with such hostility this morning alway
. is this a fair i didn't six from our republican friends? >> no, they have in the balanced any buts. bill clinton and the republicans in congress balanced the budget, but that's because the economy was growing in 1990s. i was there, i know it. it was balance -way before anybody expected it to be balanced. there is nothing that is particularly important about balancing the budget. it sounds good, but you don't really want the budget to be balanced if you have a lot of people who are unemployed or under utilize examines city. there's no reason to balance the budgets on the backs of the poor and if it means sacrificing investments in education job training, research and development, infrastructure. those are investments in future growth, the future of our country. we don't want to reduce those investments for the sake of some totem which is called balanced budgets. >> you pointed out to the gop leadership is held hostage by the tea party. when john boehner said we don't have a long term debt problem in this country it seemed he and president obama agreed to tone down the rhetoric to calm people a a
president bush, but 1998, 1999, 2000 and 2001. under president clinton and then president bush came in and did a big tax cut in 2001. put us out of balance for a long period of time. and during the period of time when the budget was imbalance the last four times out of 40 years, the revenue was coming in, was higher than it is in any year in the republican budget that's before us now. and what that tells you is that their budget approach is trying o seek balance on the backs of everybody else. by really cutting into those important investments that have helped power our company, by violating important commitments to seniors. and in the end, by raising taxes on middle-income people. why else would they not have joined democrats in sending policy statement to the ways and means committee that says when you go about eliminating tax preferences, don't hit middle-income taxpayers in the process. in fact, mr. chairman, if you look at the mortgage interest deduction, for example, mortgage interest deduction really helps middle-income people. homeowners. so in addition to saying, ways and m
in 1997 when, under president clinton, we all worked together and balanced the budget for the first time in 30 years. came into the senate in 2001. we were debating the largest budget budget surplus projected in the history of the country. that's where we were. and the question was, what kind of economic policies, what kinds of approaches would we put in place to be able to manage that fact that we had the largest budget surplus projected in the history of the country. and there were two proposals put forward at that time. and we and when the look at the way the debt was going in 2001, it's amazing, if we had taken a different track than what happened. i remember as a new member, a new democrat that our leader on our side of the aisle, senator conrad, came forward with a proposal that i felt was eminently reasonable. he said, why don't we take that budget surplus projected explus divide it into third -- projected budget surplus and divide it into their. a third of it for strategic tax cuts to grow the economy, a third of it for strategic investments in education and science, r&d, you kno
in commercials started, first he lost the 1996 presidential campaign to bill clinton. then became a spokesmodel for a new pill that was a big game changer for older men. >> when i was diagnosed with prostate cancer, i was primarily concerned with ridding myself with the cancer. secondly, i was worried about side effects like erectile dysfunction, ed, often called impotence. >> bob dole, one of the most clever senators, made more money in another commercial that mocked his own viagra commercial. >> hi. i'm bob dole. and i've always spoken to you frankly, no matter what the subject. that's why i am eager to tell you about a product that put real joy back in my life. it helps me feel youthful, vigorous, and most importantly vital again. what is this amazing product? my faithful little blue friend, an ice cold pepsi cola. >> the revitalizing effects of pepsi right for you? check with your clerk and start living again. >> i feel like a kid again. >> the joy of pepsi! ♪ >> oh, that's what i love about bob dole, he is a great guy. anyone that's waiting for fred thompson to mock his reverse mortgage
side of the coin bill clinton, you know, weighed into the israeli political campaign in 1998, you go back to george h.w. bush and jim baker had a very tense relationship with former israeli prime minister shamir over settlements and loan guarantees, so the tension is real but not unprecedented, but you can manage it because of deep cooperation that the two countries have on a variety of issues to both. >> richard wolf, at the time there were people in israel saying what joe klein was saying. >> right. >> it was very controversial thing that bb netanyahu was doing, given that he worked literally in the same office with mitt romney in boston years ago, there was just plenty of suspicion around the whole thing. when president obama arrives there today, i assume there's going to be, there was absolutely none of that from president obama, seemed like all the burden was on netanyahu today to try to make up for what he had done during the campaign. >> right. let's be clear. this is more awkward situation for the israeli prime minister than it is for the american president. the israeli prime
went to see bill clinton speak. found out for sure i was pregnant for the first time at a doctor's office in the creaky downtown. i was just in the area two weeks ago to celebrate my daughter's birthday with old neighbors and friends. what you might be struck by most if you were to visit is how genuine how kind, how open, how sincere. that's what struck me. in fact, this town is like your hometown, this high school is like your high school. something here went horribly wrong and it could go horribly wrong where you live too. yesterday i saw this headline -- another football player accused of rape. another community blaming the victim. this isn't a football sure, not a social media issue, it's an american issue, an-mile-an-hour issue that in 2013 we still live in a country where too many tolerate blaming the rape victim and calling her a whore, where a boys will be boys attitude about rape and a wink and nod for covering up for men in positions in power. folks, you and i own this culture. we can't allow these attitudes to persist. if we do, the circle of culpability radiating out
been another president, george w. bush or even bill clinton it would have been handled differently by the media, not by you, but by the mainstream media. and so it really does appear to be kind of a double standard and he gets a pass and so i guess after a while you just get used to it, and think why should i bother? >> a lot of criticism of him when he was running for president in 2008 and illinois senate voting present and not sort of wanting to be part of the process and putting his name on the line for some things and somehow does reflect it, but i think you're lucky if your political opponent doesn't want to participate you don't have to worry about getting noise or any of his positions or any of his views, something else you might not want. >> well, this is not optional, this is legally required and to me, the president, like all of us, take an oath to uphold the constitution and laws of the united states and you don't get to pick and choose. so, whether you want to or not, whether it's advantageous or not, i think he's obligated to do it and he hadn't done it. >> greta: one
. and that's an area where we have been involved on almost a daily basis. first second hillary clinton helped to pespearhead the effor to form a coherent syrian opposition council. now you've got secretary kerry, deeply involved in that effort as well. we're providing not just advice, not just words, but we're providing resources, training, capacity in order for that political opposition to maintain links within syria and to be able to provide direct services to people inside of syria, including the kinds of relief efforts that obviously we're seeing here in jordan. but there are a whole bunch of people internally displaced inside of syria who need help. i think that what your question may be suggesting is why haven't we simply gone in militarymilit. i think it's fair to say that the united states often finds itself in situation where it goes in militarily then it's criticized for going in militarily and if it doesn't go in militarily. then people say why aren't you doing something militarily? and my response at this stage is to make sure that what we do contributes to bringing an end to the
